The Witcher Season 3 star Joey Batey has revealed that his character Jaskier will be having his ‘hot girl summer’ in the new season.
Batey and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich did an interview for Tudum where they discussed Jaskier’s journey in the upcoming season.
“Jaskier falls in love,” Schmidt Hissrich revealed. “And it’s with a character who fans will know [and] continues showing up in the books. So what happens this season between them will have ripple effects for a very long time.”
“He’s having his hot girl summer,” Batey said. “It’s been really rewarding to see [his love life] told in a very visual way. [We] ensured that these romances are told truthfully — and sensitively and carefully, without resorting to stereotypes … Hopefully we’ve created something that is special, a sapioromantic and sapiosexual [connection] that is as flawed as any other relationship in this show.”
During the same interview, series star Henry Cavill also discussed Geralt’s character in Season 3.
When does The Witcher Season 3 come out?
The upcoming third season of The Witcher will be Henry Cavill’s last, as the actor is set to move on from the series, with Liam Hemsworth replacing him in the role of Geralt of Rivia. Volume 1 of the new season is set to debut on Netflix on June 29, while Volume 2 will debut on July 27.
